Rediscovering past artwork that still impresses and inspires as greatly as it did upon its release is something I love. Airigami by Larry Moss is absolutely worth sharing. Larry Moss is widely known for his work with latex balloons in creating large-scale installations, sculptures, as well as wearable fashion pieces. Airigami is the ‘Master Works’ series which consists of eight recreations of some of the world’s most well-recognized paintings, completely constructed out of balloons. including works by Da Vinci, Andy Warhol, and Jackson Pollock, the pieces are a playful exploration of the representation of art, as well as a means of pushing the boundaries of the underlooked material.
‘Master Works’ was inspired in part by the perception of my medium as just a child’s toy. I decided to create the works of the great masters to gently challenge people’s preconceived notions of what art is… and to make them smile!”
